Immigration

f t # e
 
This country was founded by immigrants who brought their entrepreneurial and brave spirit to this great nation. With the creation of the United States, our government created a set of laws, and through those laws, we have continued to prosper as a world power and model of democracy. Therefore, I believe it is the government's duty to ensure these laws are enforced in order to protect our citizens and remain the leader of the free world. To that end, I am vehemently opposed to sanctuary cities that willfully ignore federal immigration laws and allow dangerous criminal illegal aliens to remain in our country and on our streets. 

Additionally, I am strongly opposed to amnesty and believe it is inherently unfair and insults legal immigrants who have spent years playing by the rules to come to the United States. In addition to opposing amnesty, I am equally ardent in my belief that we must secure our border. Without a secured border, the United States will continue to encounter surges of immigrants and American taxpayers will continue to foot the bill. Illegal entry can pose a danger to not only our national security, but also our economy. Furthermore, an insecure border is a failure of our domestic security; we cannot allow unknown and potentially dangerous individuals to enter our country without proper screening. The American people can no longer afford the federal government's inaction when it comes to enforcing our immigration laws.
